The week before finals is a stressful time in Moffitt Library at UC Berkeley, as students wrap up semester-long research projects and cram for big tests.

That’s why Chancellor Carol Christ took a few minutes on Monday and again on Friday to deliver chocolate, sugar, raisin and red velvet cookies to studying students.

"I remember from my days as a student how stressful and overwhelming all the deadlines and projects at the end of a semester can be, so I wanted to take a few minutes to connect with our students and offer a few words of encouragement,” Christ said. "Cookies don’t finish papers, but they help.”
